The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Growing Up Jersey

Last night on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Giacinto Gorga broke my heart yet again when he and Teresa Giudice shared more tears over the loss of her mother, Antonia. While Teresa took her family to Puerto Rico, Joe and Melissa Gorga stayed home with theirs to attempt disciplining their emerging tween. Hormones weren’t just affecting the young, as we saw when Siggy Flicker dragged cameras to her doctor appointment to discuss the finer points of hormone replacement therapy. And Dolores Catania faced off with Margaret Josephs, proving her undying delusional loyalty to Siggy by justifying her wack-job behavior at the Gorga’s tasting party!

As Teresa packs for Puerto Rico, she tells Milania that they’ll email Joe Giudice in prison while they’re gone. Without Joe, Tre is glad she has her father to lean on. “He is my rock right now,” she admits. Meanwhile, Dolores is joining Siggy at the doctor’s office to discuss hormone treatments. In her butt. Siggy doesn’t want to be known as “Soggy” anymore, and is hoping getting her hormones balanced out will help shed her new, obnoxious image. Well, that and not sticking your tongue out at other middle-aged women, maybe? But hey – it’s a start.

Melissa Gorga Is Surprised Teresa Giudice Has Been So Open This Season; Says Joe Gorga Isn’t Into Being A Reality Star

After many seasons of fighting with sister-in-law Teresa Giudice on Real Housewives of New Jersey, this seems like Melissa Gorga’s easiest season yet: she and Teresa are loyal to each other, she gets to promote her businesses on the show, and her marriage with Joe Gorga is solid.

Most importantly, she’s not involved in any of the major drama. Sure, there was a huge fuss over cakegate, but most of the real fighting seems to be going on between Margaret Josephs and Siggy Flicker or Danielle Staub and Dolores Catania.

Jacqueline Laurita Warned Dolores Catania About Danielle Staub; Says Teresa Has Lost Her Mind

Dolores Catania gave a candid interview this week on The Tomorrow Show. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star explains why she worries about her friendship with Siggy Flicker, why she didn’t initially join the show, and why she is so confused by Danielle Staub‘s behavior – despite warnings from Jacqueline Laurita.

On her fear of the show ruining her friendship with Siggy Flicker: “Yes. That is a fear. Listen I never say never say never. I think I could handle anything, and sometimes you get caught in the crosshairs of things. Like the whole Margaret thing, and the whole, just everything. You get caught and you got to be just…my mother said to me, ‘you know it’s very hard to stay friends on this show. You gotta be careful.’ ”

Danielle Staub Wants To Write A Guide On Getting Engaged; Says She’s Afraid Of Dolores Catania & “Karma Will Be A Big Bitch” To Ashlee Holmes

No one will ever forget Teresa Giudice screaming at Danielle Staub about “getting engaged nineteen times” during the first Real Housewives of New Jersey finale. It was iconic thanks to that table flip. Now, Teresa and Danielle are friends, Danielle is back on Real Housewives and she has a new enemy: Dolores Catania.

Really? Dolores. She is the least shady person in this cast, but Danielle has major issues with her. From telling Teresa that Dolores supposedly said that Teresa “only cares about money” to asking Dolores where “her honey” was, Danielle is just all about “poking the bear” as she says. Thankfully for Dolores (and the viewers) Dolores is not afraid to poke back and it makes for some great television.

Instagram Roundup: Dorinda Medley, Teresa Giudice, Jax Taylor, The “Jersey Shore” Cast & More

There’s no better way to start out your weekend than with the best reality star Instagram posts of the week. No need to scroll through your feed or type in all of the names that matter. I got you covered and there was a lot going on this week and this is aside from the Halloween festivities.

The entire Jersey Shore cast (minus one person) got together to celebrate Deena Cortese’s wedding, getting me all nostalgic. The Real Housewives of Dallas stars gathered with Andy Cohen to film the Season 2 reunion and posted a group photo to show off their glamorous ensembles (and spray tans…most likely). Dorinda Medley and Tinsley Mortimer went all out when they dressed up as famous pop stars for Halloween. The Vanderpump Rules cast were living it up with appearances at the World Series and an LA clothing store launch. The Southern Charm crew made it very clear that they are filming the next season because they were turning up all over Charleston doing shotskis, watching Monday Night Football, and attending restaurant openings.

Dolores Catania Insists That She Never Talked To Danielle Staub About Teresa Giudice; Siggy Flicker Thinks Melissa Gorga Has An Attitude

After a relatively drama-free first season on Real Housewives of New Jersey, Dolores Catania is really earning her stripes during her second round and that’s all thanks to Danielle Staub coming at her. Danielle insists that Dolores told her that Teresa Giudice only cares about money.

Dolores called her a “scumbag” over and over again in an instantly iconic scene. Nevertheless, both the women are standing their ground to this day, so who is telling the truth? Dolores addressed this drama and the rest of RHONJ Season 8 during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live.

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Not Over It

I’m over it. You’re over it. My neighbor, who doesn’t even watch The Real Housewives Of New Jersey, is over it. But Siggy Flicker is NOT OVER IT, people! Yes, we’re talking about Boca. And this week, Siggy decides to take her juvenile antics to a lower level of pre-K when she literally sticks her tongue out at Margaret Josephs to drive the point home. The point being…nanny nanny boo boo? Not to be outdone by the Most Talented Person On The Planet, Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice decide to scrap as well. Whether their drama is real or fake is still up for debate, but there’s no doubt that mutual resentment is buried deep in the basement of each woman’s respective McMansion.

At Margaret’s house, she’s returning from Vegas just in time to “wash the puss and the pits.” Marge Sr. is happy to hear Marge Jr.’s success in getting her shoe line licensed. She also got to steal some hotel slippers, so the trip was a big win. Margaret didn’t have time to by her husband, Joe, anything in Vegas though, so he’s grumpy. She thinks he’s a stage 5 clinger and needs him to back-that-sh*t-up when she walks in the door. She also needs Siggy to take several seats, especially after she hears about her continued cake drama at the purse party. “This is like high school,” says Marge. “I love it.”

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: The Apology

Even though Real Housewives of New Jersey will always be The Teresa Giudice Show, Margaret Josephs and Siggy Flicker are carrying RHONJ Season 8 on their backs.  Don’t get me wrong, nothing gets me emotional like a scene with any Giudice family member, but as far as the drama between cast members, Siggy and Margaret feud takes the cake (without throwing it, obviously).

These two have something going on between them every single episode. Not only that, but Margaret’s mother is just TV gold. I have no idea why they didn’t go for some two for one deal and cast Marge Sr. as a Housewife as well. Or at the very least she deserves a web series or something. Aside from talking about her mother’s antics, the newest NJ Housewife has a lot to say about being on the show.
